'This is a welcome and pioneering attempt, conducted overwhelmingly by Africans, to integrate the insights both of academic conflict and peace analysis, and of indigenous African approaches to conflict resolution, and apply them to the needs of peace-building in modern Africa.' - Christopher Clapham, Editor, The Journal of Modern African Studies'Peace and Conflict in Africa is a significant contribution to our understanding of the conflicts which have characterized post-colonial Africa. This book sets in train the debate about how Africa-centric solutions for peace will begin to look, by seeking to valorise African traditional peace strategies through forgiveness, healing, reconciliation and restorative justice in order to build social trust. Essential reading for students of Africa, policy makers and the NGO communities' - Professor Alfred Tunde Zack-Williams, University of Central Lancashire
